    Hi new member first post.
    I've ordered a p3s should arrive in a day or two and live in a semi flat terrain but with mountains as well. Thinking of extended range wifi for it and was looking at Intelite DBS ite-DBS01.4 or Argtek with 10. DBI mod which is the less expensive. In your opinion does the Argtek work well enough for the price or should I spend more for the Itelite.
    Thanks and hope I don't go up in smoke before I get the hang of this sport

    If range was a big concern for you - you should probably have tried to save a little more and get the Phantom 3 Advanced which can go over 3 miles unmodified! As for your upgrade options for the P3S. I recommend MaxxUAV.ca. I bought my last 2 ITElite antenna mods through them.

    I though of the P3a but not sure if this will be my thing or not so $500can for the P3s is not much to put out. Just thought where il mostly be operating it may help with stronger signal.
    Have you heard anything good on the Argtek at all
